The worldwide record store directory featuring store listings and reviews from the US, England, Japan, Canada and beyond : guide review usa stores shops new york london tokyo
HomeAdd New StoreAdvertiseDonate was created by Gunnar Van Vliet in 2002 to provide a service for the serious music buyer. It was inspired by an equally useful guide for Sushi restaurants which can be found at

The premise is simple. Most record buyers travel around from time to time and their first concern in a new city is to find where the best stores are. Often, this isn't even about the records themselves, but the fact that record stores are often located in the more interesting parts of town and are run by people knowledgeable in local fringe interests.

It is our sincere hope that this directory will help the novice and avid record collector to branch out and expand their collections, through visiting more of the stores listed within. At the root of this is one's enjoyment of music, which we strongly believe to be an irreplaceable indulgence in life.
